    The cartoon should have Romney trying to convince her that the Italians are planning to send her lawn to China.

    Sadly, I kinda’ agree with McCoy on this one and the ludicrous way our elections are going, but yes, I do think Mittens would have paid someone “under the table” to push his mower, while he laid the con on the lady.

    Erma looks to me like one of the 47% of American citizens Mitt has so much contempt for.

    McCoy makes a great comment, and rather than focusing on that comment, the GoComics talking heads start slinging mud. Is there ever anything approaching an intelligent discussion around here?

    This goes both ways, y’know.

    If Chris Chistie (governor of my state) can rise above politics and praise Obama for his leadership, then I guess I can admit that for once I’m in agreement with McCoy. Maybe getting rid of the electoral college can become one issue we can all agree on.

    Nice catch, completely missed that one.

    you and i can agree on eliminating the electoral college, but the states with low populations most certainly would not. New Hampshire, Wyoming, Rhode Island, Nevada would not agree to eliminate the electoral college and weaken their voting influence.

    Also the founding fathers did not believe that we should vote directly for president (antithetical to our current belief), but that the ‘landed gentry’, should choose the president.

    And, of course, we all know that nothing has changed since the eighteenth century.

    Tigger,

    Please explain what you are talking about — why, under a popular vote, would only one state elect the president? And as much as I would be seriously upset with a country that elected Mitt Romney (I’m already seriously upset with a country where roughly half the population plans to vote for him), if people are that stupidl, I guess I would have to live with it. You don’t know me, please don’t presume to know what I would think.

    Dannysixpack,

    I’m not saying it would be easy to do, and of course there would be people against it. But why do you invoke the founding fathers? A system that was considered workable in the 18th century ins’t necessarilly suited to the 21st. And in fact it was not that the founding fathers thought the ‘landed gentry’ should choose the president; the reasons for the system we have are actually quite complex. Read up on it.

    can almost understand, now, why this country is in such trouble. There are so many Kool Aid drinkers out there. One Big A$$ Mistake America!!!!

    @paulip,
    the states with fewer electoral votes have more voting power per citizen than the states with many electoral votes. it’s arithmetic. the electoral college is in the constitution (called something else) and has been superseeded by the 12th amendment.

    in order to change the electoral college will require a constitutional amendment. this is a fact, it’s not about fairness. in order to get a constitutional amendment 3/4’s of the states have to vote for it. why would a state with more power per voter, vote to reduce their power?

    just won’t happen.

    what’s ironic is if obama wins the electoral vote but doesn’t win the popular vote (as i go to bed this is what is projected).

    somehow the red states with the fewest electoral votes (and the most power per voter) don’t get what they want.

    a brilliant strategy wins, apparently.

    btw, romney looses BOTH his home states. the republicans called gore a LOSER for not carrying his home state. what does that make romney, a double loser?
